Uranus remains in the same sign for about seven years, so its influence in the signs has only a general application. The sign indicates the ways in which your urge for freedom and individuality are manifested. The house placement is more significant on a personal level because it shows what area of your life is impacted.
Uranus in Aries. Your spirit of adventure is quite pronounced and prompts you to seek freedom at almost any price. In its most extreme form, this need for freedom can cause estrangement and a complete severance of ties with your past. You're blunt, outspoken, and can have a fiery temper. You need to develop more consideration for others.
Uranus in Taurus (in fall). You're looking for new, practical ideas concerning the use of money and financial resources, so that the old way of doing things can be reformed. You have tremendous determination and purpose. Carried to extremes, your stubbornness can impede your progress. Your materialistic attachments may limit your freedom of expression and stifle spiritual impulses.
Uranus in Gemini. Your ingenuity and intuitive brilliance impel you to pioneer new concepts in the areas where you're passionate. But your deep restlessness can make it difficult for you to follow an idea through to completion. Self-discipline will help you to bring your ideas to fruition. You travel frequently, seeking exposure to new ideas and people. You have the ability to break out of habitual living patterns and need to draw on that talent to succeed in whatever you're trying to do.
Uranus in Cancer. You pursue freedom through emotional expression and seek independence from parental authority that restricts you in some way. Your own home is unusual, either in decor or in the way you run your domestic life. There can be great psychic sensitivity with this placement, which may manifest as occult or spiritual activities in the home. This placement also carries a certain amount of emotional instability.
Uranus in Leo (detriment). Your route to freedom and independence can touch several different areas: love and romance, leadership, and the arts. Sometimes it can encompass all three. Regardless of how it manifests, you chafe at existing standards, so you create your own.
With Uranus in Leo, the risk of egotism (with this placement) is high! Actually, your best channel for expression is in dealing with issues that affect universal rather than personal concerns. This is highly recommended.
Uranus in Virgo. You have original and unique ideas regarding health, science, and technology. You seek your independence through meticulous intellectual research in whatever you undertake. There can be erratic health problems with this placement, which may spur you to look into alternative medicine and treatments.
Uranus in Libra. You seek independence through marriage and partnerships. As a result, there may be a tendency for disharmony in your personal relationships. Your unconventional ideas about law and the legal system may prompt you toward reform in that area. This placement can also produce gifted musicians.
Uranus in Scorpio (exalted). Your independence comes through drastic and profound change in whatever house Uranus in Scorpio occupies. This is an intensely emotional placement, with an innate psychic insight that allows you to perceive the nature of all that is hidden. Your temper can be quite fierce, and you may feel compelled to bring about change regardless of the consequences.
Uranus in Sagittarius. Your individuality is expressed through unique concepts in religions, philosophy, education, or spirituality. You seek out the unusual or the eccentric in foreign cultures in an attempt to incorporate other spiritual beliefs into your own. You have a deep interest in reincarnation, astrology, and other facets of the occult.
Uranus in Capricorn. This generation of people (born 1989–1994) will bring about vital changes in government and business power structures. They won't dispense with the past traditions entirely, but will restructure old ideas in new ways. Their ambitions are as strong as their desire to succeed. Look to the house placement to find out which area of life is affected.
Uranus in Aquarius (dignified). You don't hesitate to toss out old ideas and ways of doing things if they no longer work for you. You insist on making your own decisions and value judgments about everything you experience. Your independence is expressed through your impartial intellect and an intuitive sense of how to make connections between seemingly disparate issues.
Future trends are born in this placement. Actually, Uranus rules Aquarius. Since Uranus deals with personal identity, it's only natural that Aquarius is always redefining himself. He marches to the beat of a different drummer and longs to be noticed for being “unique.”
Uranus in Pisces. You bring about change and seek independence through heightened intuition. You have the capacity to delve deeply into the unconscious and receive inspirations through your dreams that you can use in your daily life. Be cautious, however, that your idealism isn't impractical; face and deal with unpleasant situations as they arise.
